This is what technology can do.
Day: Thursday, November 17th
Time: 4:36 pm
Place: The Red Line train from Chicago Avenue to Belmont; the Brown Line train from Belmont to Western
Medium: Facebook Messenger
Object: A colleague and friend who occupies a similar position to mine in a similar church
Details: I interrupted him on my commute home with a flurry of pronouncements. He, ever so gracious, asked a series of clarifying questions and informed affirmations. The exchange ended when I arrived to pick up my daughter from school.
Best line: “If we can’t do this for one another then what are we doing?”
Outcome: Anxiety=reduced. Perspective=gained.
